Nothing to See Here - Just A Sesto Elemento Driving on the Streets
With only 20 units produced, the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento is so rare that most of us can only dream about seeing one in the metal. But if you’re willing to settle with video footage, there’s a cool six-minute video that will show you what the Sesto Elemento is capable of. Flybys, sprints, onboard footage, and awesome V-10 engine noise, it’s all here.
You Can Own a Lamborghini Huracan for $130,000 But It’s Been Passed Around Like a Dirty Diaper
A unique Lamborghini Huracan is now up for grabs on eBay. It carries a listed price of $130,000, making it an intriguing prospect for supercar hunters in the ‘Bay. But before you make an offer for this Huracan, consider the fine print first. This Lambo is owned by Royal Exotic Cars, a Las Vegas-based exotic car rental company that has had this Huracan in the fold since the business started in 2015. It’s logged 188,000 miles, making it the “Highest-Mile Huracan in the WORLD.” If that’s not enough, Royal Exotic Cars founder Houston Crosta claims that almost 2,000 people have driven the Huracan since it was first offered for rental in 2015. Knowing all of that, would you still make a bid for this Lamborghini?
2020 Lamborghini Huracan Evo RWD Spyder
The 2020 Lamborghini Huracan Evo RWD Spyder is the facelifted version of the original model launched in 2016. It’s basically an upgraded variant of the rear-wheel-drive alternative to the standard Huracan, which features an AWD layout. Visual upgrades are in line with the rest of the Huracan lineup, but the RWD stands out with a unique front bumper and rear diffuser. More notably, it’s more powerful than the old model, as it now features the V-10 engine of the old AWD model. The naturally aspirated mill cranks out 602 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque. The 2020 Huracan Evo RWD Spyder hits 62 mph from a standing start in 3.5 seconds.
2020 Lamborghini Huracan EVO by Novitec
The Lamborghini Huracan EVO is one of those cars that arguably needs little to no improvement. It already packs a 5.2-liter V-10 engine that produces 631 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque. It can split a 60 mph time in just 2.9 seconds and it peaks at a top speed of 201 mph. Lamborghini set up the Huracan EVO to be a monster, but as we’ve seen over and over again, even the fiercest of monsters have levels that they can go up to. That job doesn’t fall on Lamborghini; that falls on the shoulders of aftermarket tuners like Novitec.
The Italian aftermarket company is known far and wide for its elaborate programs for Italy’s finest exotics. It doesn’t matter if it’s a Prancing Horse or a Raging Bull, Novitec can build tuning programs like nobody’s business. Take this kit for the aforementioned Huracan EVO, for example. It’s not enough that the mighty Lambo is what it is; Novitec wants to make it better, and that’s exactly what it did. From an aerodynamic body kit to a new set of wheels to an engine upgrade program, Novitec’s aftermarket program for the Huracan EVO is as extensive as it gets.
Lamborghini Steps Up in Fight Against COVID-19, Starts Production of Face Masks and Shields
Add Lamborghini to the growing list of automakers that have stepped up to help medical frontliners in their fight against the COVID-19 virus. The Italian automaker has started production of face masks and protective shields for health workers at Sant’Orsola-Malpighi Hospital in Bologna, Italy.
Lamborghini is targeting a production rate of 1,000 face masks and 200 face shields per day. The supercar brand is the latest automaker to lend a helping hand to the medical frontliners who have had to fight a staggering number of recorded cases in Italy. As of April 1, 2020, Italy has recorded 110,574 cases of those affected by the virus. Of that figure, a total of 13,155 people have died while 16,874 have recovered from the deadly virus.
This Cyberpunk Countach Is The Electric Lamborghini We Need
Just so we’re clear, Lamborghini isn’t keen on jumping head-first into the electrification bandwagon. So far, Sant’Agata Bolognese has been keen on tipping its toes into the ocean with the Aventador-based, V-12-hybrid Sian FKP 37, but the company’s officials are adamant that an all-electric Lambo won’t arrive earlier than 2026.
If that’s the case, then let’s play the following scenario: the year is 2090, Lamborghini has a couple of EV supercars on offer, yet an extremely affluent and eccentric collector decides to retrofit his Lamborghini Countach with an all-electric powertrain and a cyberpunk-like appearance. What would that look like?
How Fast Can a Lamborghini Go in a Half Mile?
Lamborghinis are very fast, and that’s no secret. Pretty quick off the line, too. Even the big-boned Urus can hold its own in a 0-62 mph sprint, which it can dispatch in 3.6 seconds. But this video isn’t about the Lamborghini Urus. It’s about one of Lambo’s pure-breed, low-slung supercars and its ability to stretch its legs in the half mile.
The Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster came out four years ago with bold claims: 50 kilos (110 pounds) lighter than the regular Roadster, heavily infused with CFRP (carbon-fiber reinforced polymer) and bonkers aero upgrades. But how well can it perform in a half-mile sprint?
2008 Lamborghini Reventón
The Lamborghini Reventon isn’t just a styling exercise that sits on the chassis and drivetrain of the Murcielago LP60. It’s the pole bearer for a new direction in Lamborghini design, a direction whose cues can be seen in future Lamborghini models such as the restyled Gallardo or the Aventador. The source of inspiration? Fighter jets.
Marcello Gandini all but dictated that all V-12 Lamborghinis have to be brash and dramatic with razor-sharp edges, clean surfaces, and aggressive angles all around. The Italian manufacturer didn’t have a visual identity before the year 1974 so they went with it, seeing how well the wedge-shaped mid-engined supercar faired. Then came the Diablo, then the Murcielago, all of which following the same path. However, with each new car, Lamborghini refined the edges, added a few curves here and there, made things softer.
The Reventon looked like a return to the roots. It looked like an F117A Blackhawk with that bespoke grayish green color covering all of the pointy surfaces and, for all the work Lamborghini put into the car’s exterior, you can forgive them for leaving the underpinnings taken straight from the Murcielago LP640 untouched. Just 20 examples were made a decade ago - yes, it’s that old! - and then Lamborghini set to work again cutting the roof off the car to create a Roadster version. Some thought it’s a bit weird while others love it. The going rate for one of these suggests there’s not much interest in them now they’ll still turn heads anywhere they go.
1993 Lamborghini Diablo SE 30
The Lamborghini Diablo SE 30, where SE stands for Special Edition, was built between 1993 and 1995 to celebrate the 30th anniversary since the Lamborghini company was founded by Ferruccio Lamborghini. Only 150 of these special Diablos were built and less than 30 received the coveted Jota package.
Lamborghini’s only supercar built during the Chrysler ownership years was the Diablo, a model that was conceived to be better in all areas than the Countach which had originally been presented all the way back in 1974. The Diablo featured a rounder design although it was still a wedge shape car in spirit with the same scissor doors that powered the Countach to every child’s bedroom wall in the ’70s and ’80s.
As mighty as the Diablo was, Lamborghini turned the dial to 11 with the SE 30. Designed as an even more purposeful version, it was over 250 pounds lighter than the standard model and hid almost 40 extra ponies under the engine lid. But Lamborghini’s desire to go GT racing in the then-sprawling BPR GT Endurance Series saw them build a number of Jota kits designed to be added to the SE 30. The original purpose of the Jota trans-kit was to transform the Diablo into a turn-key race car, but the majority of the 28 kits built ended up on street-legal cars after all.
Car For Sale: One Owner 1990 Lamborghini Countach 25th Anniversary Edition
One of the most iconic Lamborghinis ever built, the Countach was introduced in 1974 as a replacement for the equally iconic Miura and survived into production for an impressive 16 years, until 1990.
30 years later and the Countach remains a highly sought-after collectible, commanding millions of dollars in certain specifications. If you like the late models with wider skirts and the more powerful V-12, you can score one in pristine condition at Silverstone Auctions’ Race Retro sale in the U.K. on February 22.
Lamborghini Confirms Hybrids are Coming, But Condemns the 2020 Geneva Motor Show
Lamborghini’s parent company, Audi, has issued a press release that, among other things, says that Lambo won’t be attending the 2020 Geneva Motor Show. The idea behind this move is that it wants to skip GIMS so that it can focus on “standalone events” where its cars won’t have to share the spotlight with rival models. If you were there last year, you’d know that isn’t really the case – Lambo was in the middle of one of the larger halls and surrounded by cars it doesn’t compete with – but hey, one excuse is as good as any other. There’s a little more to this story, though.
Lamborghini adds Amazon Alexa to Huracan Evo at CES
The 2020 Consumer Electronics Show just kicked off and Lamborghini came to Las Vegas to show off new tech for the Huracan Evo. On top of releasing an updated rear-wheel drive version to replace the old LP 580-2, Lambo added Amazon Alexa to the supercar’s list of features. This is big news as it’s Alexa’s first venture into the supercar market. Also, Lamborghini programmed the voice assistant directly into the infotainment system rather than adding it as a third-party app.
